Despite the unanimous applause from media and riders alike, we made the best even better in the 2016 Stage. Internally, we manipulated the rebound architecture to reduce operational noise by 26%, but still maintain the high-volume, high-flow circuitry that gives the Stage fade-free performance, precise damping control, and one of the longest service intervals in the industry. On the compression side of the equation, we gave you more easily discernible adjustment increments for both simpler and more robust tunability. Our wiper seal design and compound has amazingly reduced friction. And finally, we completely refreshed the graphics and you can color match your bike and fork — something never before seen on the consumer or dealer level.
